TO BE OR NOT TO BEBY W. SHAKESPEARE

ITS LIFE AND PLAYS

Shakespeare was born in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, in 1564.Shakespeare wrote plays and poems. His plays were comedies, histories and tragedies.Shakespeare’s plays began to be printed in 1594, probably with his tragedy Titus Andronicus. This appeared as a small, cheap pamphlet called a quarto because of the way it was printed.None of Shakespeare’s manuscripts survives, so the printed texts of his plays are our only source for what he originally wrote. The quarto editions are the texts closest to Shakespeare’s time. Some are thought to preserve either his working drafts (his foul papers) or his fair copies.
